I realize you already have a solution, but what about this:
sub boldify { local $/ = undef; my $input = shift; my @parts = split /``/, $input; foreach my $i (0..scalar(@parts)) { $parts[$i] =~ s/\*\*(.+?)\*\*/<b>$1<\\b>/gs if ($i % 2 == 0); } return join '', @parts; }

Here's a test:

my $test_data = <<INPUT; This is **bold**, but ``this is **not** bold`` ``This is **not** bold``, but this is **bold**, and ``this is **not** +bold`` This sure is **bold** and so is **this**, but ``**this**`` aint INPUT print boldify($test_data);


This is <b>bold<\b>, but this is **not** bold This is **not** bold, but this is <b>bold<\b>, and this is **not** bol +d This sure is <b>bold<\b> and so is <b>this<\b>, but **this** aint

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
